There probably is a connection.Do you know when your Joseph Burton was born?I assume you mean Joseph Burton BLACK.I have a Joseph BLACK, but don't have a middle name for him. Interestingly, one of my Joseph BLACK's children has a middle name of Burton. Probably too much of a coincidence. Here's what I have on all my BLACK's.
John C. BLACK, born 1 June 1787 in South Carolina. Died November 1854 in Sanford County, Alabama. Married Elizabeth ????? in 1812.
Elizabeth ????? was born 6 Aug 1795 in South Carolina and died August 1859 in Sanford County, Alabama.
The only childof John C. BLACK & Elizabeth ???? that I know of was:
Joseph BLACK, born 2 Apr 1825 in South Carolina. He married Mary E. DOSTER.
Children of Joseph BLACK & Mary DOSTER were:
Nancy Anne BLACK: born 7 June 1862 Allamath B. BLACK: born 1848 David Smith BLACK: born Jan 1849 Margaret BLACK: born 1853 Martha Jane BLACK: 12 Jan 1855 Mary [Polly] Addine BLACK: born 28 May 1857 Louisa A. BLACK: born 7 Apr 1860 Rebecca BLACK: born 1867 James Burton BLACK: born 1869
